CoFit Movement

origin, mission & founders


CoFit Movement was born from the simple idea that fitness can be designed and used to connect people. This thought process was inspired from SOGO Fitness, a non-profit fitness community empowerment platform that started in Tokyo, Japan. The inclusive and social community culture within SOGO naturally lead to more and more interactive partner and group workouts over time that came to define its weekly bootcamps.

The founders of CoFit strongly believed that this type of interactive fitness could benefit the world beyond the realm of fitness communities. However, it would be necessary to refine, develop and adapt this concept to be better suited to different demographics.

CoFit and Connection Fitness were conceived to realize this dream.
